Chalgrove Women Over 35s

Chalgrove Women over 35s was formed in March 22 by Carol Phillips who already played walking football with the club. A couple of friends asked her if she would start a section for ‘older’ women who didn’t particularly want to join the ‘walking’ section just yet! As there were no other women’s recreational clubs in South Oxfordshire (at the time) for women 35+ Carol approached the Chairman of the club and agreed that we could be affiliated to Chalgrove Cavaliers and Oxfordshire FA.

After advertising around the local area 10 enthusiastic ladies turned up for a kick around on the MUGA. It was obvious from the very start that this small band of women were thoroughly enjoying themselves; not only the football but the comradarie, and encouragement shown to all. A lot of fun was had!

Fast forward a year and we now have 22 ladies of all abilities, some beginners and some that have played before. We sometimes play a few friendlies with other like minded clubs and enter the odd tournament throughout the year. We’ve even had a coach from Oxford United put on a few fun coaching sessions in the summer!

Our ethos has always been about having fun whilst keeping fit. All ladies encourage others and it doesn’t matter if you make mistakes!

The sessions are classed as ‘Turn up and Play’ sessions with a short warm up at the start and warm down at the end.

It doesn’t matter if you miss one or a few sessions as we know other commitments can get in the way. Just turn up when you can.

So, if you have no experience of playing football, little experience of playing football or would just like to return to playing football, come and join us if you are 35+. Our oldest player is 62!  There is no judgment! There are women waiting to welcome you, so what’s not to like?! AND its only £2 per session!

“Chalgrove Women’s team is such a great team to play for. Such a nice bunch of ladies who make everyone feel welcome. It’s perfect for all abilities. I started as a complete amateur and have learnt so much along the way. It’s great for fitness and for just having some fun.” Leanne Douglas member since March 2022
